Fabulous Stay In Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Spain and we fell in love with Barcelona. Raul is a jewel. He picked us up from the train station, took us on a tour of the city, provided us with detailed maps with bus stops and suggestions of where to go and what to see.

The apartment was just perfect for the four of us. There was a fabulous fruit/wine basket waiting for us plus a refrigerator stocked with beer, juice, cold drinks, water and other amenities. The rooftop terrace was especially nice....a great place to relax after a day of enjoying Barcelona.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Felt at home immediately

  • 5 of 5

Raul greeted us at the train station like a long lost cousin. He seemed as excited as we four adults as he drove us around Barcelona pointing out not-to-be missed sights and acclimating us to his Eixample neighborhood. Waiting for us in the charming apartment were a huge fruit basket with wine, well stocked fridge and cupboards. He spent time with us indicating on maps the best neighborhood markets, restaurants and metro/bus stops to take us to each of our main destinations. All of his recommendations were super. Raul and Carmen have done everything to make their guests comfortable. Comfy beds, lots of tour books and maps, fully equipped kitchen. Sitting on the 5th floor terrace with our coffee in the mornings we enjoyed the aromas from the little bakery across the street. Needless to say, we were frequent visitors there as well as at the nearby market. Hopping the metro based on his advice we felt like natives, quickly getting around town. Returning home in the evenings we were glad to leave the crowds of the Gothic Quarter as we ambled along "our" neighborhood streets picking up fruit, bread, cheese and wine from the local shops. We enjoyed sunsets and stars in the evenings on the terrace feeling like real Catalans. We were even able to use the clothes washer and hang the laundry on the terrace. Saying goodbye to Raul at the airport after our week in Barcelona was hard. He made our visit so very special (and easy) and we made a new dear friend.

Fantastic location and excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived, Raul made sure we were prepared for our visit. He set up a meeting point at the train station and gave us some ideas for adventures. We appreciated his first class service in picking us up at the train station and giving us a tour of the city. He also sat down with us to help us plan our bus and train routes. Everything we could have asked for or expected was provided or he got for us. The location was excellent and we had so many options for great restaurants right outside our door. The apartment was spacious, clean and very comfortable with all the amentities you could need. There's even access to a semi private terrace looking out over the city and we actually had it all to ourselves every time we used it. We can't wait to get back to Barcelona and stay at this apartment.

We now feel like we have family in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about Raul and his apartment in Barcelona! Raul picked us up from the airport, greeting us as soon as we had our bags. He gave us an instant sense of security and comfort! We were incredibly jet lagged, as our two children immediately fell asleep in his car. While they slept, he drove us to many attractions and sights! Following our mini tour, we arrived at his super comfortable, well located apartment. He gave us maps and suggestions on how to navigate the city. Additionally, the apartment was well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc. An extravagant basket of delicious fruit, milk, juice toast, butters and jams were all available! We had breakfasts with these items, enjoying the lovely terrace. There was even a bottle of wine to greet us!

We were spoiled by Raul. He made dinner reservations for us, drove us places when he was available, and even helped me find a purse I had left behind at a shop!

We honestly feel like we have a relative in Barcelona! Our family had a wonderful stay.

Our stay in Barcelona was amazing! Raul was the perfect host and the apartment was just righ for us.

  • 5 of 5

Raul was a gracious and generous host. From picking us up from the airport and dropping us at the port when we left. A mini tour on our arrival to get our bearings and time spent going through maps and recommendations. He printed off tickets for us and even had a gorgeous gift basket of fruit to welcome us.

Would highly recommend. Raul is awesome.

Fantastic apartment in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Owner Paul Duran picked us up at the airport, drove us on a mini-tour of the Barcelona then spent a least 90 minutes with us in the apartment showing us the best way to travel to points of interest. He provided detailed maps with bus stops and routes clearly indicated. The apartment itself was clean and well-decorated. All the dishes and utensils we could possibly need were provided. In our four days there, we could barely finish the huge fruit basket that he provided upon our arrival. After our stay, he took us back to the airport. Great apartment! Fabulous host!
